Once our athletes have rehabilitated their injury, and we have make sure that they’re safe to return to sport, some patients may want to continue with a sports performance program. This program will help the athlete focus on improving strength, flexibility, speed, reaction time, agility and balance so that they can perform at a higher level at their chosen sport. It will also help them learn how to prevent further injury which is the most common reason for reduction in performance. At Peak Physical Therapy and Sports Performance we can either perform this training at our Hanover office or refer to specific trainers we trust.
